I chose the Dubliners because I knew I would never have the will and patience to finish Ulysses. Some of the stories were good, “The Dead” for instance. But, it just isn’t representative of the Joyce that I love. This book just wasn’t doing it for me. I found this novel to be tedious and slow.

Having said that, I liked most of the stories and loved the 4th, “Evelyn”. It bore me terribly. Felt very sexist at times. Yes it was interesting to see how the people of Dublin lived at that time, but I would have preferred to have one huge story dublkneses not so many novellas.
